About me

I know that deciding to see a therapist can be difficult so please do contact me if you have any questions or concerns. All converstions are confidential.

As an integrative CBT therapist, I draw on a wide range of approaches that we can adapt to your specific needs and preferences and all the methods and techniques I will show you are evidence based, meaning that their effectiveness has been researched and tested over many decades.

I specialise in working through anxiety, stress, depression and anger related problems as well as questions of meaning and direction in life.

What to expect:

  • You will have the space to work through thoughts and feelings in a friendly, supportive and confidential environment with acceptance and without judgement.
  • Sessions will have a clear focus and direction so that you understand what we are doing to help you move forward in positive ways.
  • We will put into place a practical plan for you to make positive changes and remain resilient when things get difficult.

Locations:

I am based at clinics in Finchley Road NW3, near West Hampstead and Finchley Road underground, overground and rail stations, and in South Molton Street W1, near Bond Street underground station. I also work with many clients via Skype or phone - an equally effective and very convenient, lower cost alternative.

Training, qualifications & experience

As an integrative CBT therapist, I work with a range of different approaches within the CBT tradition including Rational Emotive Behavioural Therapy (REBT), Cognitive Therapy (CT) and Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) as well as other related approaches including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT).

I am an accredited member of the National Counselling Society and I am CRB/DBS certified. I trained at King's College London University and at The College of Cognitive Behavioural Therapies London. I hold an honours degree in Philosophy, a Certificate in Counselling and three postgraduate diplomas in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy: Diploma in CBT, Advanced Diploma in Integrative CBT, Advanced Diploma in CBT/REBT with Distinction.

In addition to my private practice, I am a registered therapist for a national charity supporting people experiencing anxiety and depression.

Issues I can help with include:

  • Managing stress better.
  • Overcoming anxiety related issues such as chronic worry, insomnia, panic attacks, performance or public speaking anxiety, social anxiety, general anxiety disorder and phobias including agoraphobia.
  • Talking through feelings of sadness or emptiness. Finding a way out of low moods or depression.
  • Dealing with conflict better. Managing anger and frustration better or being more assertive.
  • Improving confidence, self-esteem or self-image.
  • Coping better with social situations. Making better connections.
  • Stopping unwanted cycles of thinking and behaviour such as obsessive or compulsive tendencies, like OCD, or issues around food and eating, like bingeing, or addictive tendencies.
  • Adjusting to a loss, for example, a bereavement, divorce or separation, or redundancy.
  • Working through unresolved issues from the past.
  • Coming to terms with a traumatic experience.
  • Coping better with ill health or physical issues and limitations.
  • Working through issues concerning sex or intimacy.
  • Working through problems in relationships, family life or at work.
  • Sharing concerns that are weighing on you but you haven't been able to talk about to anyone.
  • Feeling less stuck and finding more sense of purpose in life.
  • Overcoming procrastination and feeling more motivated!
